Check out this photo of a crane lifting a ship’s propeller at the Aker Shipyard in Philadelphia, PA USA:

You can see the ship, nearly completed, in the background. In the foreground at the various winches that will be installed on deck. Looking forward to getting more great photos and video of these operations.

Making Real Estate

The old saying goes, “Buy real estate. They aren’t making any more.” Well, that’s generally true. However, in some places, they are making real estate. Take a look at this recent photo from New York City:

The contractor built a sheet piling wall and then filled in behind it. Looks like they’re also building a new pier there, which is essentially real estate above the water. Either way, it seems NYC is gains a few acres here.
